Level four shutdown a bit pointless without testing all arrivals

There is far too much anecdotal evidence that our current border controls are weak, and unless fixed immediately, will partial make a nonsense of the level four shutdown starting Wednesday night March 25.

Its a mystery to me why the Government has been so slow on testing arrivals whether Kiwi or not.  Tracking tourists has clearly been pathetic but at least that risk source is now closed off.  But inward bound Kiwis are just as likely to carry the virus as anyone else coming in.

What about testing every single person who enters the country and imposing tough tracking requirements on each one of them, with random follow up checks?
